Crash

 

continued

The small SUV slid through the intersection and jumped the curb on the far side. It flattened a street sign, scraped against a pine tree, ran right over a second tree, and came to a halt against a third.

The wrecker driver pronounced the Honda a total loss. The police blamed the crash on the weather.

That's what it's like on the streets of Ann Arbor-you're driving along, minding your own business, and suddenly, boom! You've been in a crash.

Roads covered with ice and snow are especially treacherous. "In a five-day shift, I take at least five [accident reports]," says Ann Arbor police officer Noel Scott. "Come winter, double it."

But crashes happen year round. And as I learned while riding with Scott and three other AAPD officers, there are some places where they happen over and over again.
